PennDOT launched a massive, six-stage project to rebuild and widen I-95 through Philadelphia. Phase four, estimated at nearly $212 million and noted as the second largest construction contract in PennDOT history, includes reconstructing ramps, replacing three mainline viaducts, replacing two bridges and constructing three retaining walls. The general contractor, James J. Anderson Construction Co., Inc., specified the T-WALL® Retaining Wall System designed by The Neel Company and manufactured by Oldcastle Precast for over 50,000 square feet of retaining walls.

The T-WALL retaining wall shown is located between E. Ann Street and E. Allegheny Avenue on the Delaware River side of I-95. The 3-D wave pattern with ghost waves was designed by PennDOT and created with custom formliners from Architectural Polymers. The design concept is to commemorate the history between the citizens of Philadelphia and the Delaware River.
